Hey Brandon, thanks for chiming in, I am a huge fan of your tips here
Here is what I did: after user Dave recommended Massproxy I decided to give them a try and to use their 30% discount on BHW forum and bought 50 proxies for $18.
Then I bought 16 fresh accounts from already tested provider and 10 from a new one. I wanted to test different accounts on new proxies. I will also create a few test accounts.
Then I imported and validated all 50 proxies to MP. Then I added manually first 16 accounts one by one. Then I added remaining 10. I think it took me an hour or so.
26 accounts were added 1 per proxy..
3 weeks ago I added accounts from same provider, but they were 2 weeks old, I guess it makes a difference. Now they were created the same day.
Regarding follow settings, I set them to follow 15-35 people using #f4f and similar hashtags. I do not think Instagram can catch me on that.
Maybe these proxies are not good. First 2 accounts (survivers) were added to Instant proxies, other 24 were added to Massproxy.
All proxies are dedicated.
